Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes that Andre Onana ‘disgracefully’ attempted to endear himself to the Manchester United supporters when he yelled at Harry Maguire during a pre-season match.
In what was a major talking point on social media at the time, Onana was spotted having a go at Maguire during a match against Borussia Dortmund after the defender gave away possession which allowed the opposition in on goal.
According to Carragher, Onana attempted to gain the approval of the United fans by asserting himself in a ‘disgraceful’ manner.
“One of the most distasteful incidents of all occurred during the friendly with Borussia Dortmund in July, when new signing Andre Onana started yelling at Maguire, in my view disgracefully playing to the gallery to endear himself to United fans,” Carragher wrote for the Telegraph, as per Daily Mail.
“I watched that in disbelief, but it said everything about what has gone wrong. Maguire was still the club captain then. He should have reacted furiously, put Onana in his box and demanded respect.
“Instead, he has the persona of someone whose confidence and authority is utterly broken.”
